The Wood County Sheriff’s Office is reporting a series of scams and identity thefts.
In Bloomdale on Feb. 25, a resident reported receiving a bank inquiry asking if she was using her debit card in Georgia. As she was not, the bank declined the transaction and the card was canceled. In checking later, she discovered charges posted on Feb. 23 and 24 totaling $273.
In rural Bowling Green, a resident on Feb. 26 reported she received a phone call from a male claiming to be her grandson. She stated that she told him she did not have a grandson and the man disconnected the call.
On March 9, a Pemberville resident reported he located a vehicle on Craigslist. He went to a Detroit residence and decided to purchase it. He paid cash and returned home with the vehicle. He checked the history and discovered it was a stolen vehicle.
On Sunday, in Dunbridge, a woman stated she received a Walmart notification on her cell phone that her order was ready. The order, including a television, was in Dry Ridge, Ky.
